The Hinglish workshop was organised by The Sarai Programme, CSDS, and SOAS, University of London. The workshop sought to explore and understand the new porousness of Hindi and English in everyday and cultural practices and the relationship between language use and social and cultural imaginaries, along lines of inclusion, stratification, and exclusion.
